CNN’s Jim Sciutto on ‘The Shadow War’ Against the United States @ Walter and Leonore Annenberg Theater

CNN chief national security expert Jim Sciutto talks about his new book, “The Shadow War: Inside Russia’s and China’s Secret Operations to Defeat America.”

Wolf Blitzer, CNN’s lead political anchor and anchor of “The Situation Room,” will moderate the conversation.

In the book, Sciutto warns that the country is under threat from longstanding adversaries Russia and China, whose endgame is to defeat the U.S. without a modern-day Pearl Harbor.

From the ocean to outer space and from stealth cyber incursions to blatant territorial aggressions, Russia and China are fighting an unfamiliar type of clandestine warfare which senior officials identify as the nation’s most pressing security threat.

Sciutto is CNN’s chief national security correspondent and “CNN Newsroom” anchor who reports, anchors and provides analysis across the network’s programs and platforms on all aspects of U.S. national security.

Blitzer is CNN’s lead political anchor and the anchor of “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,” which airs weekdays at 5 p.m. ET, providing viewers with in-depth reports about the political, international and breaking news stories of the day.

A book signing will follow the program.
